EXETER TWP., Pa. - Santander Bank is preparing to consolidate one of its Berks County branches into another.
The bank has announced plans to close its Reiffton branch at 4001 Perkiomen Avenue in Exeter Township, effective at noon on March 30, and consolidate the services it provides with Santander's Exeter branch, located about a mile away, at 4900 Perkiomen Avenue.
The bank said its only customers who will be required to take action as a result of the move are those who have safety deposit boxes at the Reiffton branch.
"We ask that you contact our Reiffton branch at 610-779-5200 to make arrangements to close your safe deposit box no later than Friday, March 16, 2018," said Jonathan Leyden, district executive for the Pennsylvania/New Jersey central region. "To make the transition easier, we are pleased to offer you a one-year waiver on your safe deposit box rental fee."
The Exeter branch's lobby opens for business at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Closing time is 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 2 p.m. on Saturday.
Customers with questions about the consolidation can call the Reiffton branch or 855-806-6516. Customers with hearing impairments may call 800-428-9121 (TTY/TDD).
Santander's departure from 4001 Perkiomen Avenue clears the way for redevelopment of a site that has already been home to several businesses over the years, including King's Hamburgers, Elby's Restaurant, and Boston Market.
